Mutations in the genome of A. baumannii, where ISAba11 is inserted upstream of ispB and reduces ispB;s expression, increases A. baumannii's cell size and antimicrobial resistance, making it more harmful. This is shown in that the bacteria are a deeper red as they become more virulent. As this transitions across the graphic, gene insertion and asymmetrical membrane restoration are depicted.
